Best Chili I’ve Made Without a Recipe

But I guess it’s a recipe now?

I had a brief moment of kitchen excellence this week when I whipped up some chili on a whim.  Prepare yourself for the delicious meat feast and, potentially, momentous gas. Impress your friends, alienate your spouse!

I was shocked at how great it came and wanted to share, so here you go:

2 pounds 93/7 ground turkey
2 large cans of Hanover kidney beans
1/2 of a pre cooked andouille sausage
1 large can of crushed tomatoes
1 regular can of diced tomatoes + 1 of these cans filled w water
1 regular can of tomato sauce
1 small can of tomato paste
(At this point you can tell I was just adding more tomato products for NY desired consistency)
1/2 large white onion

Spices:

2 TBSP Chili powder (I used hot Mexican variety here)
2 TBSP Cocco POWDER
1 TSP Cinnamon
1 TBSP Brown sugar (i used trulia)
2 TSP Cumin
1.5 TBSP Garlic
1 TSP Ancho chili powder
1 heaping TBSP Salt
2 TSP black pepper
1 TBSP chili flakes
1 TBSP onion flakes (i like onion)

Directions

Cook the meat, drain, set aside
Sauté the onions and andouille sausage. Towards the end of the cooking, add the chili flakes and saute for another 3min
Add the spice mix the pot and stir until onions and sausage are coated
Add all tomato products to deglaze  the pot
Add back the meat and beans
Stir carefully, the sh#t is bananas.
Add more water to your desired consistency
Simmer for 20-30min on low stirring occasionally
Again, prepare yourself for the delicious meat feast and, potentially, momentous gas. Impress your friends, alienate your spouse!

Enjoy!
